I just simply love baskets. I have a zillion of them in every room of my home.There function is from holding crochet items to mail. This basket is perfect for the remote controls on the coffee table. It uses so little yarn, I just make more than one or two.

This is a cute crocheted basket. The directions are simple, including attaching the base to the sides of the basket. I would use a kitchen cotton yarn as it would make a more sturdy basket because it isn't a soft yarn. A variegated color would also look great for this basket. If you crochet loosely, go down a hook size or two to make tighter stitches.

Cute! Just wondering, do you have to put some sort of stiffener or spray starch on this basket to keep it from collapsing or does that depend on the weight of yarn that you use? Also, does putting lots of little items in the basket make the sides fall over?

Simple and easy to follow crochet pattern. Thanks for such a great pattern.

I've been looking for a simple and easy pattern for a basket. I am wondering if this can be done to be about the size of a small storage or moving crate/box. I received a lot of yarn for Christmas and am currently storing them in beach bags. Has anyone tried to make this in a larger size and if so how big did the final basket measure? Thanks in advance for any information tips or thoughts given.

I made this a while back with worsted. Size turned out to be 9 X 5 X 4 with the top turned down. Sort of floppy. To do it again I would use cotton for a sturdier basket. Doesn't hold much in the way of a stash but cute for small items.

Hi. If you want it to make the sides/bottom stiffer, try crocheting on rope. The basket would turn out stiff and strong.

I'm confused - yarn weight 4 or Softee Chunky, which is weight 6? Big difference! How sturdy is it?

Malm- Judging by the gauge, I'm going to guess you should be using a 6 (super bulky) weight yarn for this pattern.

I love this to pieces - and I have some spare yarn may I post back later to let you know how it went

Ana Mara, I think RS means right side!

It's an amazing basket! i can't wait to try making it. I've got some difficukty figuring out the meaning of the abbreviations RS,beg. Can you help me? Thxs a lot.

love and adore it, so useful
